Patricia Briggs is one of my all time favorite authors and this story was exceptional. Adding Holter Graham's narration to it was a delicious coating of frosting on a scrumptious dessert. This is a treat worth savoring!
I wish it addressed some of the feminist implications brought up by this story world's rules.
It was exiting and action packed.
The beginning vignette that was almost a character study of a new character was a great scene!
Yes, Holter Graham is one of the best readers out there.
Come for the urban fantasy, stay for Holter Graham's narration.
The relationship between Charles & Anna was great! I love story lines with alpha men who know how to treat their women.
The narrator really got into the story. I felt like I was there.
The relationship between the characters was really well written.
Read this book before Frost Burned of the Mercy Thompson series. The story crosses over in a big way. This book as the feel of a true mystery and I loved it.
I was cool on this "side" series to the Mercy books at first but I'm a true believer now. I love these characters just as well. Great read.
I have pretty interesting tastes. But mostly I enjoy a book with a strong heroine character that has a touch of romance, a bit of adventure and a happy ending. I also like books about fitness and in particular--yoga. I LOVE Audible!
Yes -- If the friend was looking for some sexy, paranormal fantasy with a strong heroine character that gets to save her own prince charming (kind of returning the favor), then yes, absolutely, I'd recommend this book to a friend!
Any of the others in the Alpha Omega Series by Patricia Briggs.
ONE of my favorite scenes was the spontaneity of the main characters little rough and tumble outside! Woo woo!
The Werewolves are Coming!
I didn't read the print version although I have it on my Kindle. The audio edition is marvelous because of the way the characters come alive. Holter Graham is an excellent narrator and makes Charles jump out at the listener.
I compare it to Hunting Ground because it has the same characters. All of Patricia Briggs' books tie in to her other series or to previous books in the same series. This makes the reader/listener a part of the world in which the characters exist. I love this connection.
Yes. This one is just as good as his other performances. He is a very gifted narrator. I would listen to his other books.
I felt sorry for the giant silver deer. He didn't understand what he was and might have been different if raised by someone other than his crazy uncle.
This series is terrific and I will continue to follow Patricia Briggs. I think that I like the Mercy Thompson series best.
The original world the story takes place in
The evolving dynamic between Charles and anna
When Charles pins the witch down for gloating over the dead boy
Who says fangs and claws can't be sexy?
This series is a great balance between action and romance great listen!
Seriously limited TIME! which is why I love audiobooks. I can do chores and ignore distractions by plugging my ears with my favorite authors
She keeps building on her world, she laid this amazing foundation, like a beautiful yet frightening floor mozaic. Then she adds the walls with murals and supporting columns, the painted ceiling. Eventually you are surrounded by a cathedral of the fanciful and the grotesque, brilliant! Now a side note: I have only this title in the series in my audible library as I had already acquired the first two in the series from another source before I discovered Audible. I have also found the Mercy Thompson books available in audio from my local library. If you know someone in publishing, please! Someone really needs to record in audio the prequel novella Alpha and Omega from the anthology On the Prowl. The story of Cry Wolf feels very incomplete without it, I found an amateur recording of it(free no less) on the exchange table at my local library. Yes someone finally did that much for the visually impaired readers/fans of PB. We who are sighted do enjoy audiobooks but for the blind this is the only way unless it is available in brail or they have someone to read to them. Will someone on the print/audio publishing end please have the prequel novella recorded and published soon?
Certainly this audiobooks ranks about the top 15 of all the audiobooks I've listened to so far.
I simply love Anna - I think she's a great heroine, growing in emotional strength, being a person one can easily relate to, being a wonderful partner for her husband. Although Charles follows her closely in the "liking"-scale. I appreciate especially that he is not one of this super-human, emotionally closed-off alpha heroes that kill practically without remorse or repercussions just because it is "necessary". He has his own issues with the course of the story and makes his own mistakes, but never takes it out on the heroine or someone else.
there were parts that made me teary-eyed, but there are also some good laughs
I had a few problems with understanding some characters, especially Charles, but I'm not a native speaker. In the end, I just read some passages again and then resumed listening.
